Samsung’s local office says Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4 pre-order season has been the most successful yet with a 50% increase in pre-orders compared to pre-orders for the previous Foldable.
This is according to the Director of Mobile Experience Division, Samsung Electronics East Africa Limited, Mr. Charles Kimari.
The pre-order for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 started on 11th August and ended on 4th September 2022.
“This year we have seen the Samsung Galaxy Foldable do quite well during the pre-order period. We had intentions of ending the preorder on 31st August; however, due to demand and request for an extension we opted to add a few days to enable those who haven’t made their pre-orders to do so as we aim to officially end on 4th September,” said Charles
Charles notes that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 continues to make an impression in the C-suite with a majority of pre-orders being from top business position holders. ‘’In previous years the Fold has always been the driver for the Foldable smartphone category but this year we have seen a shift in purchase trends and we can attribute this to the acquisition steps we have taken like the partnership with Badili Africa who offer trade-in service and Aspira Kenya who allow our customers to acquire the devices and pay within 6 months attracting 0% interest,” adds.
